    3.00" Procharger pulley. Pulley was 100% smooth in the valley and was black. Now....

    Unfortunately I probably wont even run this pulley because Im going with an 8-rib conversion.

    THANK YOU Ford for going 8-rib stock on the 5.4 F150 lol

    It was only $87 to coat (including shipping).

    I have a spare 6-rib belt that I wrapped around this and the grip seems pretty awesome. If I ever get this on with the 6-rib, I'll report the details. I'll most likely go 8-rib before hand and end up selling this pulley

    ive read some threads from 09 and people were saying good things. just wondering why it never caught on if it works. I see guys say just tighten the belt down more.. well ill let the tensioner do work, id rather my crank stay in one piece. I have another tensioner on the way. I might go ahead and get my 3.25 pulley coated. just hope I dont end up going through belts.
